Fatso Jetson

Since they have recently split a disc with Herba Mate (see yesterday), might as well get introduced to
these fellows if you are unfamiliar......from Palm Beach California, another that worship at the alter of Kyuss/Queens of the Stone Age, which make them a prefect compliment to split a CD with Herba Mate.......anyways....here is most of the work from Fatso Jetson that I can locate.......hope you guys enjoy it, there is some good stuff here, for fans of West Coast stoner rock at least!

Former memebers of  (the great) Yawning Man Mario Lalli and Tony Lalli joined forces with Tony Torny to form Fatso Jetson in 1994......thier debut was "Stinky Little Gods", a unknown somewhat-classic of Dessert Surf......it's not thier best effort, for my cash, but itis worth a listen: the fab finale "Corn on the Macabre" gets the job done, as do several other stoner/burner numbers here.....it's a good album,good starting point.

In 1997 they came up with "Power of Three", a fine album of power trio/stoner rock, LOTS of oddball shit here such as "Ugly Man, Ugly Name", "Orgy Porgy" (Named for a term in "Brave New World" what could be better?), and "Phil the Hole"....simply put, what Herba Mate=Kyuss, Fatso Jetson=QOTSA.....pretty simple really, but I do love all these bands, really.

For their next disc "Flames For All", they added second guitarist Gary Arse, formerly of Yawning Man, and turn out another winning effort, perhaps their best (I'd say so...), "Fucked Up and Famous", "Untimely Deat of the Keyboard Player", and "Icon To Ex-con" are perhaps the highpoints, not only of the album, but arguably of the career.

2001's "Toasted" is also a fine album, albiet returning to the power trio format of the earlier
efforts....Good hard rocking stuff, the definition of "stoner rock", .......what else would you make of titles such as "Too May Skulls", "She's So Borg", or "Tutta Dorma".....frankly, if you like this stuff  (and I DO), you wil want this one as well.

2002's "Cruel and Delicious" added some other musicians, ie keyboards and the like......well, what are ya gonna do? It's "growth", I guess, shorter songs, more fleshed out sound.....not as great an album, but there ya go.....there are plenty of good, listenable moments here, like "Drinkin Mode", "Party Pig", Mountain of Debt".......frankly, another good LP, these guys were really underappreciated.

They released a 2007 Live disc that for whatever reason I cannot find (CALLING BLOG FRIENDS), the most recent release I happen to have is "Archaic Volumes" from 2010 after all these years, these burnouts still know on which side their bread is buttered......not at all a bad CD, "Golden Age of Cell Block Slang, "Jolting Tales of Tension", and "Play Dead" stand up  with all of their earlier "classics"......

These guys were farily-under-the radar masters of dessert surf/stoner rock.......nothing here as great as you might find on the greater albums of Kyuss or QOTSA, but still, this is pretty good stuff, if you are a fan of stoner-rock (NOT really "stoner metal", there's a diff) you will likely enjoy this...and if ya DO, make certain to go to the Herba Mate post and check out their new split with THAT band, whom both of have agreed to share with us for free so we can check it out......cool.....also if anyone has "Fatson Jetson Live", I don't seem to and it would be a sweet addition to THIS bunch ,so please be generous!.

OR.....never mind.....I found a copy of the live disc somewhere online....I THINK that this is their complete catalouge, if anyone has anything else please share....this was/is a decent stoner rock band, I would classify them as a poor-man's QOTSA, and that is no insult....

Want to go off-topic for a minute? Of course you do......when me an dmy "homies" (GOD I am so HIP) were talking about famous media-bitches we'd like to do earlier this evening, the name of Nancy Grace came up (from me)......looking for opinions here.yes she is a total bitch.....but I sincerly would fuck the living hell out of her, she (IMO) is SOOOOO fucking hot, ESPECIALLY with that fucking handcuff necklace.....OOOOOOOOH baby.....and, since what babes we'd like to do is such a topic of titanic importance, here is MY list of the world's hottest fucking women (notice Nancy doesn't quite make the grade, but personal to NG: Anytime, anyplace Baby)......I would LOVE to hear everyone else's lists of the hottest babes in captivity, it's SO much more interesting than talking about stoner rock or retirement (did I mention I am retiring June 27? possibly, I have....)

1. Carla Miller (my beloved of 27 years)
2. Drew Barrymore
3. Geneveve Gorder
4. Megyn Price
5. Jenny McCarthy
6. Lennon Murphy
7. Lita Ford
8. Vida Guerra
9. Emile de Raven
10. Olivia Paige

MMmmmmmmmmmmmm, that is a fine list......anyone else have any "special favorites"? My wife and I jokingly have a "list of three" that we are allowed to have sex with without reprecussion, mine, of course, is Drew, Geneveve, and Megyn.......hers are three guys I've never heard of, ahh, well......

so anyways, Fatso Jetson......COMMENT COMMENT COMMENT, this is a pretty big post on which I worked my fingers to the bone. I may have forgotten to mention that I am retiring on June 27, and, if so, send cash in lieu of congratulations.......
